Rob Sonic presents “Sabotage Gigante”

I’ve always liked Rob Sonic. He’s usually overshadowed by others — first by Mike Ladd when the two recorded for Ozone Entertainment (remember Sonic Sum?), and now as a part of the mighty Definitive Jux family. His music is quirky, organic and a big bohemian culture jam, sort of like El-P but without the malevolence. Sometimes difficult to get with at first, his music rewards repeated listenings.

Rob Sonic’s second album, Sabotage Gigante, drops September 25 on Definitive Jux. As usual, when he heads out on tour this fall he’ll play second banana to someone else, namely the equally accomplished Aesop Rock. Smart fans will get to the venue early.

The track listing for Sabotage Gigante and the tour dates are below.

  • 1. “Teeth Eat Her”
  • 2. “Brand New Vandals”
  • 3. “Mother of All Bombs”
  • 4. “The Over Under”

  • 6. “Rock the Convoy”
  • 7. “Smoke If You Got Em”
  • 8. “Dead As Disco”
